Last Week’s April Fool’s Day Post

Originally published by Jim Dedman.

We hope you enjoyed last Friday’s April Fool’s Day post, which was entitled “In ‘Game Of Thrones’ Litigation, South Carolina State Court Enters Judgment Against George R.R. Martin.” It was immensely fun to write, and we hope you enjoyed it. We were pleasantly surprised that the post received some attention, and we even earned a link from The Volokh Conspiracy blog at The Washington Post. Longtime readers may have noticed that we referenced the non-existent “Western District of South Carolina,” which we hadn’t mentioned on the blog since our Star Wars April Fool’s Day post back in 2011.

We know some people aren’t fond of April Fool’s Days posts, but we must confess that they are one of our guilty pleasures.

By the way, in the interests of completism, we present these links to our past April Fool’s Day posts:
